Although I'm sure the instance is rare, this just came up in the Yucata tournament for Maori.

If 2 players end with the same # of points, and the same # of shells, is there any other tiebreaker to determine a winner? Or is it just a "shared victory?"

From the rules:

"The player with most points is winner of the game. If player tie with the most points, the player among those tied with the most shells wins. If there is still a tie, those players rejoice in their shared victory."

And yes that battered English is exactly the way it is written in the rules, not any typos from me.

Interesting - thanks. The copy of the rules both in the files section and on Yucata have omitted that last sentence.

Re: Double tie - is there a resolution?
I was in your same grouping in the tournament, but not that game. Hope it helps me pull ahead somehow! I have no idea how the tournament brackets work, but it's interesting.
